Cloud Sculpture Made From One Hour of Trash in New York City

If you’re a fan of striking visual representations of information, then this stunning cloud installation made by Studio KCA, which represents the number of plastic bottles thrown away in one hour in New York City, should be right up your alley.

Made from 53,780 recycled bottled – the amount thrown away in NYC in 1 hour – it is a space where visitors can enter into and contemplate the light and color filtering through the “cloud” from the inside, out.

The installation is called “Head in the Clouds…” and it was exhibited last summer on Governor’s Island in New York City.
